PFN announces new capability to produce highly differentiated premium products

PFNonwovens, a leading global producer of nonwoven fabrics with operations in Europe, USA and Africa, is investing in a new technology designed to boost nonwoven product performance at its site in Znojmo, Czech Republic. This new technology allows PFN to make proprietary premium, apertured and 3D embossed fabrics to expand and diversify its product portfolio for the medical and hygiene markets. Installation and commissioning of the new line is scheduled for Q2 2021.

PFN’s Chief Technology and Product Development Officer, Tonny de Beer, commented that “We are very excited to combine this technology to add even more value to our premium and ultra-premium softness solutions and to enhance our bio-sourced nonwoven portfolio. We will be able to offer new patterned topsheets with higher absorption, beautifully textured backsheets with improved breathability, and we will launch several new compelling product applications for our hygiene and medical markets.

“PFN remains focused on delivering precisely tailored solutions to meet specific customer needs.  This investment provides our customers an easy and visually distinct way to differentiate their products from their competition, while providing better value to the end-consumers”, said Shane Vincent, PFN’s Chief Commercial Officer & Global Head of Business Development.
